Brian May & Kerry Ellis The Candlelight Concerts: Live at Montreux
On 19th July 2013 (Brian’s birthday) the Montreux Jazz Festival hosted the penultimate concert of Brian and Kerry’s Acoustic by Candlelight tour. It was their first appearance together at the festival. The show features a wide range of songs, from Queen classics like "We Will Rock You," "Love Of My Life," and "Crazy Little Thing Called Love" to the Oscar-winning "The Way We Were", as well as lesser-known gems like "Dust In The Wind" and "Life Is Real," all of them performed beautifully by Brian and Kerry in stripped down arrangements which allow the songs shine through with unusual clarity and passion. Significantly,this was also the first live performance ever in Montreux of "No-One But You," a song Brian was inspired to write in the city during the unveiling of the Freddie Mercury statue in 1996. This is Ellis and May live at their very best.
